that spending. president obama and liberal allies don't seem very concerned. and that, in my opinion, is dangerous. on the social front the latest stats available show there were 1,200,000 abortions performed in the u.s.a. in 2008. that means more than a million americans will never be born. should the country be proud of that? yet, we see wild applause when proabortion zealots speak at the democratic convention, for example. exactly what are they applauding that more than a million potential human beings are dead? drug front panoply that drug use will be legal in the u.s.a. close to 30 million americans are addicted to something. yet, some people are happy, happy that, yet, another indocks can't will soon be widely available. does that make any sense to you? as far as children are concerned they can see the lowest forms of depravity on the internet. yet public schools are mandated to virtually ignore religion. let's recap, enormous amount of entitlement spending drive the nation into bankruptcy. judeo religion philosophy deemphasized in schools. abortion and drugs more widely availa

it was a police officer, they don't argue that a police officer should not be armed. the second one is the actual situation that you get when you have lots and lots of individuals running around trying to play vigilante. >> it is interesting, there were others e-mailing us, saying we were afraid to tell that story, because they point to us as a sign that people being armed is a good idea, kind of to address the theories. you actually say there is more common ground and the thing that is the president could do that the nra would actually give thumbs up to t. what do you see? >> the truth is i'm much less interested in the politics than the policies that can come from it. the president has taken flak for not doing enough on gun control. but there are things like enforcement. 77,000 people have lied on criminal background checks on whether they could legally obtain a gun. they have been identified by the fbi, turned over by the justice department, and not processed. they could say prosecute people on their background checks. there are also the national instant criminal background check mechanism, is
. i don't have any problem, larry, like you, with either one of these provisions. i'm a second amendment supporter and i don't think these go to that level. but at the same token, what happened to mental health? what happened to access to weapons? neither one of these would've blocked the shooting in newtown. >> i don't mean to be rude, but i've got breaking news i've got to pick up. please hang with me. phil lebeau's got breaking news ton the 787 boeing dream liner. phil, if you're out there, tell me what you've got, my friend. >> larry, we have learned that the faa is going to be conducting a special review of the power system in the 787 dream liner. essentially this is the faa saying let's take a pause here and take a look at the design, the manufacturing, how the power system works on the dream liner. let me be clear here, this is a special review. this is not an airworthiness directive. it would be a much more serious matter. and it might involve airlines being told stand down, don't fly this plane. that is not what is happening. airlines that have the dream liner will con
sheets. >> china looking better, europe not as bad. >> you're, i don't know about that. >> well, we call this the economy in a coma. basically without these trillions of dollars of stimulus, we would be in a downturn, in a depression because we also have 42 trillion in private debt, the greatest debt bubble in history and that needs to unwind. basically ben bernanke and the economists are just saying we're just not going to let this slowdown happen. we're not going to let the debt de-leverage. if you don't let the debt de-leverage or restructure japan, the same thing japan has done, quantitative easing forever, you never come out of this because the debt keeps weighing on the economy so not only do you have slowing demographics. we've got a 200 to 300-pound weight on our back and you can't run very fast. we get 2% growth with massive life support. we're in the emergency room on life support only because of this trillions of dollars of stimulus. i guarantee -- >> what's the catalyst? >> you take away this stimulus for one year, and this economy dies. >> harry, stay right there. want to ge

that i don't think does any damage to the pro-gun control argument because it was a police officer. i don't think anyone's arguing police officers, perhaps even off duty police officers shouldn't be armed. the second one seems to be much more like the actual situation you get when you have lots and lots of individuals running around trying to play vigilante. >> we picked that story because there are all these conspiracy theorists e-mailing us saying we were afraid to tell that story because they point to that story as a sign or indication of people being armed is a good idea. you say there's more common ground and things that the president could do by executive order that the nra would give a thumbs up to. what do you see? >> i'm much more interested less in the politics of tomorrow than the policies and common ground that can come from it. the president has taken a lot of flak from people like mayor bloomberg for not doing enough on gun control in his administration. there are things like enforcement. for example, 77,000 people have lied on criminal background checks on whether they coul
. call me 1-800-743-cnbc. don't you just hate reality? boo! don't you hate it when you know the numbers are too high or the world is simply not yet in a place where you can be confident that things are okay? don't you hate that members of the federal reserve think that we have reached a great place so it is time to stop helping the econo economy. don't you hate that washington doesn't care what place that we are in at all. don't you hate that karma. >> house of pleasure. >> house of pain. >> down 55 points today. nasdaq declining 42.3%. you know i hate all of these things. what do you do? no, you look for themes. that is why i'm a big believer of themes. all week i plan to plan out the themes of 2013 that you can fall back on when the dow falls. they are dominated by anxiety. i expect the market to go down in the near future. but look, i think it is too high right now and maybe it comes in. but i don't want you to fear that decline. no opportunity, use it as a chance to buy the sectors that can bounce back harder and faster than anything else. i want you to be ready. i need you to take

people believe would be more effective. don't forget, there's a lot of history here and joe biden was the person managing the 1994 crime bill, which included the ban on assault weapons. he remembers what happened to democrats after they got past and lost control of the house. >> where could there be some consensus on this issue? >> again, in talking to administration officials about this, who have been involved in some of these sessions, one source said to me that it would be on the background issue. there seems to be a consensus developing that you can close that gun show loophole, require background checks. and the other area is on these high-capacity magazines. if you could limit those high-capacity magazines, then perhaps that would be another way of going at the assault weapons ban without allowing folks to say, you know what, you're taking away my guns because you wouldn't be taking away their guns. you would be just limiting those high-capacity rounds. >> you don't only need to develop a consensus with the republicans, but amongst the democrats you need a consensus because

in washington who personally don't like chuck hagel. they may actually like him personally but he rubbed some people the wrong way in the course of doing politics in d.c. what do you think is going on here with someone like senator mccain says one thing six years ago and another thing today. people like lindsey graham bring up the word "israel" an awful lot. what's at the core of the opposition? >> i think some of those substantive issues do concern him? . john and joe are right. chuck hagel has distanced himself from the republican party in a real and significant way. he essentially voiced support in 2008 for then senator obama's campaign for the presidency. traveled with him offer seas and really worked to squash concerns raised by mccain at the time and some of the fringe of the republican party barack obama was unfit, unqualified and maybe not even an american. this confirmation hearing will be important. it's obvious even some democrats want to hear answers from senator hagel on a variety of issues. have confidence he will be confirmed unless one of these senators steps forward and says

. if you don't believe me go see the movie "deer hunter." it's a classic. so i'm confident his set of proposals on universal background checks, closing the gun show loophole, gun safety, and doing something about those high-capacity gun clips and whatever else he puts forward is going to be something reasonable hunters and second amendment people will find sensible. i'm not big on interest groups. i want to democratize the way we make laws in this country. the more people have a say in writing the law, the betert law. the fewer the people the worse the law. big corporations, for example, shouldn't write corporate tax law, and gun owners shouldn't be the only people involved in gun law. anybody can get shot by a gun, killed by a gun, and they all ought to have a say. and, that ladies and gentlemen, as joe biden would say, includes all of us. all of us should make gun law, not just the gun people. so let's go at it. and please don't, please don't lose interest. this is a test of strength. keep your grip on this gun safety issue because the other side is still into keeping theirs. you
live on surfaces. a lot of people don't realize this. they can stay on these stays for eight hours. say your co-worker is sick, you touch their keyboard, you touch your nose or mouth and now you're infected. the problem escalates if you spend several hours in tight quarters like an airplane. passengers in two rows or behind of the infected person at highest risk. the best way to kill germs is to wash your hands and do it often. use real so and real water. the problem is that most people don't actually wash their hands long enough. my best advice, actually sing the happy birthday song twice while you're washing your hands. it's not quick to get rid of these viruses. another key to prevention is getting the flu shot. getting vaccinated, reduces your risk of getting the flu by around 60%. another benefit, martin, to getting your flu shot is if you do get sick your symptoms won't last as long and be as severe as compared to those who weren't vaccinates. >> parents of children diagnosed with the flu might have another problem on their hands. a shortage of the drug that's prescribed to childr
explains why we still don't have a budget and how our elected officials have bungled a basic business process most of us handle with ease. a must see. "your money" starts right now. jo america's road to economic recovery is wide open, right in front of us, if our elected officials don't put major blocks in your way. i'm ali velshi. debt ceilings, budgets and spending cuts are all you'll hear coming out of washington for the next few months. the partisan warfare in washington could put a dent in any recovery. the threat is real. the next battle will be another clash over raising the u.s. debt ceiling. the current ceiling was officially hit on december 31st, but like last time the u.s. treasury is using extraordinary measures to get through about late february or early march. if congress doesn't act by then, the government risks not being able to pay some of its bills. republicans seem to think the debt ceiling is a useful tool to limit how much the government spends, but that is not what the debt ceiling law is supposed to do. it gives the u.s. treasury the flexibility to borrow money
us that change can come if you don't give up. that is the conviction we must carry now in our hearts. >> this week, we learned that the inaugural prayer will be delivered by medgar evars. these are powerful similar bombs, strong statements about america's struggle towards justice. we should all remember when we see the advancements of african americans or latinos or women or whomever have been shut out and had doors closed. those doors will open because others pay the price, others sacrifice, yes, some even gave their lives. we must never forget that it was not your abilities alone, but it was those that paid a price. so that your abilities would even be considered. that's a potent message the president does by bringing dr. king's bible to this inauguration. even if you choose not to be ininvolved, at least don't be ungrateful. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >> hi noon on gun control. let's play "hardball." >>> let me start with this, new school shooting in california that's left a 16-year-old in critical condition. the national rifle associ
instead be mostly on treating the mentally ill. >> i don't think there are gun control measures that could have prevented the newtown killings or most other mass measures. the key measure we could adopt is to prevent the dangerously mentally ill from getting firearms in the first place. that's where some of the key solutions will come, i believe. >> new york's democratic governor andrew cuomo wants to roll out new gun control measures tonight, according to wcbs news. the report, govern cuomo would like to announce new restrictions on assault weapons and high-compass parliamentary inquiry magazines as well as -- high capacity magazines. >>brian: thanks for the live report. the president has nominated a couple of people, new c.i.a. guy, brennan and hagel to be his defense secretary. we've talked in the past a little bit about brennan's problems. it's very clear that hagel could actually be the most divisive nomination fight in the senate since, what was it, 20 years ago when president george herbert walker bush nominated tower for defense secretary. >>brian: he didn't get it. >>steve: he abs
down. in iran it is still floating. it is he so far generating zero outrage provided you don't count the stopped clock that is center john mccain. he tweeted a link saying if we end the war in afghanistan the whole thing will have been a waste. other than him, if you heard a chest bumping outcry? i have not heard that outcry. the balloon is still floating. president obama is meeting with president karzai tomorrow. but it has also revealed where american politics are. in year 12 of this war. nobody is outraged by the prospect of it being all the way over. nobody is shooting this balloon down. now it is time for "the last word with lawrence odonnell". >> the nra met its worst nightmare today and his name is joe biden. >> the nra is a friend of freedom. >> i want to thank the national rifle association. >> they do a terrific job. >> we have the craziest people. >> too much weaponry in all the wrong hands. >> but there are also thing that is we know. >> he has a lot of friends on the hill. >> the vice president's task force powwow. >> there is no room. >> not to give an inch of ground. >
andrew cuomo? >> i'm not against gun control. i don't see civilian use for those big guns and all that. but to think that solves the problem is crazy. can't trust any politician who just proposes gun laws and goes back to sleep. the fact that a deranged person, like the one in newtown, connecticut, could still enter the school with a couple of handguns or a knife or axe. if we're not going to talk about mental health, we're not talking about the problem. >> i want to talk about mental health. i don't know if this kid could've been stopped but he was obviously mentally ill, should have been institutionalized, and i think, mark, i'm going to guess, cuomo mentioned this specifically, i hope the federal legislation deals with this too. it's got to be easier for national documentation for people with mental illness problems and for what i'll call reinstitutionalizing them. they've been out on the street for years and need to go back into the institutions, mark simone, that should be part of the change. >> absolutely, we've cut the number of institutions, the funding, all that sort of stuff
doesn't shoot themselves in the foot in the next two months, which is a possibility, but if they don't, we think the economy is going to do well this year. we think stocks will go higher. inflation is relatively tame, pes relatively low. so even we're at a five-year high, higher and we went down. we think the market is poised to do better over the next year and actually over the next three to five years. >> michael, where are you putting money to work right here at a portfolio manager? >> well, we're putting it all over the place because we run a diversified funds so precious metals, shorter-term bonds because of the potential of higher rates and high grade corporates as well as equity markets, both u.s. and non-u.s. in the short term the stock market can outperform while the economy does not, but in the longer term those two things are going to come back to equilibri equilibrium, so, you know, the market is at a high here, corporate earnings in q3 were very weak. i think q4 earnings will tell a lot, and i think the political dynamic coming up in march is going to be interesting. i d
. >> and the parents are dropping their little kids off to a school, and they don't know that there is a firearm in the classroom. do you think they have a right to know? >> not necessarily. not necessarily. >> why? >> because i think that firearms are -- what we do know is that the bad guys come into schools. what we don't know -- i mean, we're making lots of guesses about what could happen if. and those things haven't happened. like i said, we've been able to carry them for 12 years here in utah. and i have not heard them. and they would be on the news if those things happened. >> she is torn by the culture of guns in this country. she wants to do the right thing. i don't believe caroline kane is an unreasonable person. and i'm glad she spoke her mind on this program. but it is also reasonable to be concerned if your child's teacher is carrying a loaded gun and if you don't know about it. there is a major disconnect in america between the two sides of the discussion. we can't achieve solutions until we figure out how to bridge the gap. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. t
. but if you don't deal with mental health issues, you don't deal with substance abuse issues, and you don't deal with violence in the video games in the media, if you don't deal with all of it, you're not going to eliminate the problem, or even reduce the problem, in my view. >> chris christie was rightly praised for his leadership in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. no doubt about it, he stood up to his party for their actions and how they didn't do what they were supposed to do early on to get relief from congress. but now is the time for real leadership, passing the buck on to the entertainment industry, governor, is nothing but a cop-out. it's a great way to divert attention from a politically delicate situation and difficult position. >> i don't let games like call of duty in my house for ps3 and xbox. that's a decision mary pat and i have made. you cannot tell me sitting in the basement for hours playing call of duty and killing people over and over and over again does not desensitize that child to the real life effects of violence. >> i don't disagree with governor christy. parent
in china. i think because of that these industrials can do very, very well. i don't know that it will be this quarter but i think going forward the industrial space is a base we can move off of but the financials will put us to the upside. we get to the xof, close above that 17 level for a couple days in a row, get into the earnings season and jpmorgan can put the flash in there, we're going higher. >> what is the retreat in stocks telling you now? >> i think this is the most constructive thing that could be happening. this is what you want to see if you're bullish. we're very close to new highs and you've consolidation on very low volume. my favorite feature of the option this week is the fact that correlations continue to stay almost nonexistent. in other words, even when you have down days, you have money that continues to work. i'd like to see them rotate sector to sector without a lot of panic. even though we're opening down and staying down. >> it looks like we may start off getting out over our ski as little bit. let's folks on the vix. the vix is down in the $14 r
they are going at it through the money angle. very, very smart process, but i don't think -- they're not staying true to the second amendment. >>steve: you mentioned the current attorney general and his sound bite from back in the 1990's. here is eric holder talking back in 1995 about gun control. think about what he said then and how it applies now. >> what we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool. it's not acceptable. it's not hip to carry a gun anymore. in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes. when i was growing up, people smoked all the time. both my parents did. but over time we changed the way in which people thought about smoking. now we have people who cower outside of buildings and smoke in private and don't want to admit it. >>alisyn: that was his feeling in 1995. we don't know if that is still eric holder's feeling is today. if there is any common ground, what they've said they all agree on is that the background checks need to be better. even the guns -- the n.r.a. felt that
hill, that could mean trouble. >> i don't see him grabbing a mike which is what i want. i think one of the things that really hurt this whole process is people coming in front of a microphone saying that the talks are bad. leave it in the locker room. especially if you're looking at it as an investor. what really 457ed in the fourth quarter. owning stock, making decisions and someone would come on air and say this is a disaster, no way we could -- i just want quiet. even if it's no, no, no, i want quiet. maybe this man, forest hills man -- >> forest hills high school, too. queen, baby. got to bring inthe hometown. probably a mets fan like me, so he has that going for him, too. but -- >> that could be no, no, no. >> obama in a tough place. could you nominate a former banker? unlikely. could you nominate a ceo? >> i thought they could do dave cody. there's a story in the "new york times" about how everyone has a vested interest. i know dave cody personally and professionally. his vested interest in anyone who read his white paper is to cut trillions out of the budget so we do not beco
. >> hopefully we don't get to that point. >> a place for politics. >> well, i got 98% of what i wanted. i'm pretty happy. >> the republican party losing streak continued today as a new poll shows that republicans also lost in the public perception of the fiscal cliff negotiations. "the was post" shows that 30% approve the way house speaker john boehner handled fiscal cliff negotiations, 56% don't approve, 53% approve the way president obama handled negotiations. 40% disapprove. today, chris christie continued his campaign against house republicans. >> we look forward to what we hope will be quick congressional action on a full, clean, sandy-aid bill now. now, next week, one thing i hope that everybody in america now clearly understands, new jersey, both republicans and democrats will never stand silent when our citizens are being shortchanged. >> and let's not forget what governor chris christie said last week. >> there is only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims. the house majority, and their speaker, john boehner. >> and today, "the daily beast" publ
've had a 16% run in the u.s. equity market and i don't feel like anybody celebrate that had at all. professional investors have gotten more bullish and individual investors still remain sidelined. lots of cash sitting out there. we know there's issues at hand and know the fiscal cliff is coming down the pike but more importantly the global growth story still remains intact. it is going to have a fair amount of bumps but through the bumps we're looking at using those types of opportunities to add risk assets to client portfolios. >> absolutely our share of issues. talk about this in my observation at the end of the show. rick, a lot of optimism about the direction of this market. you just can't fight the fed. where do you think interest rates are going to do, and that's going to dictate where you want to put your money because we're talking about zero returns elsewhere. >> yeah, i'll tell you what. here's the way i look at it. i think that we're going to have a giant hiccup in the form of activity slowing due to some of the things embedded in the grand bargain at the end of the year
